4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent case. Works great for my Sony VAIO Z., May 17, 2012
This review is from: Thule Gauntlet TAS-113 13.3" MacBook Pro and Retina Display Sleeve (Black) (Personal Computers)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I kept having problems finding a case for my 13" Sony VAIO Z. All the standard PC laptop cases are either 10" (for netbooks) or 15" (average laptop size), or the giganto 17".

Finally, I figured out that the VAIO Z is about the same size as the MacBook (but thinner) and gave this a shot. And wouldn't you know? It worked! It fits snugly, has lots of protection on the inside and a sturdy exterior to protect from the outside. The zippers are sturdy and move smoothing. It doesn't even smell bad (a problem with many cases these days).

All in all, I'm impressed. This was just was I needed. Even though it was made with a MacBook in mind, it's a perfect, affordable case for my 13" VAIO Z, and I feel good about the level of protection it offers.

My only complaint is that a case like this could stand to have straps or someplace to attach them. It's not a major issue, but the case has no handle or straps, and for the price I think that would be a nice feature to include.

So it gets four stars for great protection and a decent price. I docked it one of five stars because it could be just a tiny bit better with some sort of handle, strap, or grip.

Have you tried this with the extra battery add on that you can get with the sony vaio z? Have you found anything for the docking station or do you just leave that at home? Glad to see there is a case suitable for the vaio z!!! thank you!

I did use it with the Slice battery, and it fits. It's a tiny bit more snug, but there was no struggle getting the VAIO with slice battery in this case.

I leave the docking station at home. I rarely need the optical drive and extra graphics power on the go. I suppose you could use a nice tablet bag/satchel for the dock, though.
